I don't have 1.1, but I saw @hazard-ish use them as a ufo. And it flew.

Am I allowed to self-nominate? :D

It might work as a lift providing surface for an ultralight-style plane....

Although extremely high drag might do interesting things. From a quick read, looks like right now it's working as a very effective self destruct feature for heavier landers

Even without any pitch control surfaces it works. It always pulls up, but using the Reaction Wheels and Roll it's better than any plane when it comes to maneuverability.

I think I saw @ShadowZone use it as a boat/hovercraft. The body lift is hilarious.

Yep. They really like to stay out of the water ;)

This version has much more even weight distribution, and does not get wacked by it's spent booster, that's why it's stable the whole way down.

Hmm, Can someone test my theory that if it spins fast enough it can be used to make a helicopter?

Probably won't work though :P

Actually it might. It's going to have a lot of toque though. 

BTW welcome the the forums!
